UKZN Students Set Fire To Another Building

Rampaging students at the University of KwaZulu-Natal have set alight the HIV support centre at the Howard College campus.

The building is the second one to be set alight. Last week, the Risk Management Services building at Westville campus was torched allegedly by protesting students.

Students armed with rocks and sticks were engaged in running battles with police and campus security Monday morning. Police used rubber bullets in a bid to disperse the crowd.  

There were also reports of unrest at UKZN’s Pietermaritzburg campus.

Students are demanding that historical debt be scrapped.

UKZN management said it was helping students as much as it could and already had about R1.7 billion of student debt.
